Why Does My Furnace Smell When I First Turn It On?

Now that the first cold snaps have hit our area, many people are turning on their furnaces for the first time this season—and in addition to a houseful of warmth, they’re also getting a strange burning smell. So where’s that smell coming from and should you be worried?

Thankfully, the answer is quite simple—no furnace repair or replacement should be needed! Over the course of the summer, your heating system has been gathering dust and other debris—and that odor you smell when you turn it on for the first time is actually just that dust burning away. The smell should go away after one or two uses.

It’s also important to remember furnace maintenance at the start of the season. Now is the perfect time to schedule your annual maintenance. Contact us online by filling out the form on this page or call 732-455-9110 to set an appointment!
